it is more likely related to the DVD drive.
My new laptop (1year old) takes whatever I throw at it but my older one is picky and doesn't like some brands of cd or DVDs
I just bought 5 DVD-R , old latop can sometimes write on them but can never read them (I know the opposite would have been more logical) the new Laptop loves them.
Had also the case with some old cds same scenario. So a DVD may boot on one machine and not on another, that doesn't prove anything.
Can you boot using usb on your old laptop?
People disagree with me. I just ignore them.
